Israel's intractable conditions to keep settlements and Jordan Valley and East Jerusalem and surrounding buffer brought this about. I have to respect Abbas and Fayyad for not going on being stooges to Israel and USA in their attempt at a very lopsided peace deal. Congrats, Israel, your friends are leaving you. Dennis Ross. Abu Mazen. Salam Fayyad. Enjoy the alternatives.
